This week is National Doughnut Week, I’m not one to jump on these sort of marketing ploys, but I though I would post my recipe for easy baked cinnamon doughnuts. 

Dry Ingredients:

100g plain flour
110g caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dry nutmeg
1/2 tsp dry cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

60ml soy milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Egg replacer for 1 egg (or 2 Tbsp. apple sauce)
55g pure soya margarine

Coating Ingredients:

40g caster sugar
1/2 tsp dry cinnamon

You will also need a doughnut pan or mini bunt tin, you can find these on line online at Amazon, but other retailers will sell them.

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180c/350ºf/4 GM

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly.

Combine the wet ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat and mix until the margarine is just melted. (This mixture should be just slightly warm to the touch, but not hot).

Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until just combined. It should form a very soft dough.

Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into an un-greased nonstick doughnut pan. Then smooth out the top of each doughnut with your fingers, this will make for more even doughnut when baked.

Bake the doughnuts in the oven for 12 minutes. While the doughnuts are still in the oven combine the coating ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

You will know when the doughnuts are cooked as they will be browned on top, and a toothpick or cake tester will come out clean. Invert the hot pan over a cooling rack to remove them from the pan. When the doughnuts come out of the pan and are still hot, toss them in the cinnamon sugar coating.

This recipe will make 20 mini-doughnuts or 10 regular-sized doughnuts.

You will find that all of my recipes will be freefrom dairy and eggs, the reason for this is that lot of children now have allergies to these ingredients and I want to offer family friendly recipe that everyone can enjoy.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

      We release the majority of our content under a Creative Commons Licence so anyone is free to use our content for personal or non profit usage. We also encourage the content to be shared freely, so copyright isn’t really an issue. The only content we try to protect is the user contributed articles, such as this article you have commented on. Articles written by users are copyright to the original author.

      I cannot speak on behalf of LoSW, or the contributors and authors, but my personal opinion, is that if people are out to copy your content, they are going to do so regardless of what measures you put in place to prevent it, I find if you allow the copying (hence the reason we opted for a creative commons licence on the site), people who are going to copy your work will be more willing to at least give credit to the source.

      As for user submitted articles, we do occasionally check with copyscape.com and make sure that sites copying content at least acknowledge the author of the article. For instance, the following site: raw.la/latest.html scrapes sites for news on food and healthy living, and have scraped some articles by Jayson, however they only show an excerpt and provide a link back to the full article on Jaysons personal blog. I am not sure how Jayson will feel about it, but the way I see it, is that the site will be generating traffic for his blog and are at least crediting the source.
